Authorities in Brazil Make Massive Security Preparations for Inauguration

According to the agenda of the visit released by the Israeli Embassy in Brasilia, Netanyahu will have on Tuesday, same day of Bolsonaro's investiture, bilateral meetings with the presidents of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernandez, and Chile, Sebastian Piñera, and then talk with Pompeo.

Bolsonaro pledged during his election campaign that Brazil would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy from Tel Aviv to the city, claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians.

"Slamming those in Brazil who blasted Netanyahu's visit, Bolsonaro said", Those who did nothing but rob the country, have no right to express criticism". "Israel is the promised land and Brazil is the land of promise". "We want more people to partner with Israel, as well as with us".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was to head Thursday on the first trip by an Israeli premier to Brazil, where he will attend the inauguration of incoming president Jair Bolsonaro.

Bolsonaro said before and after his election that Brazil would follow the USA lead and transfer its embassy to Jerusalem. "It is a great change that [President-elect] Bolsonaro has declared and I am pleased that we can begin a new era between Israel and the major power called Brazil". "It's hard to believe that we had no such contacts before", he added. He also spoke of cooperation in military and agriculture matters.

Netanyahu Could Cut Unprecedented Brazil Visit Over Politics At Home

"I am certain that the Secretary and the President-elect will discuss the human rights", the State Department official told reporters. But Bolsonaro and Netanyahu have developed an increasingly warm relationship with similar views on security issues. Brazil has traditionally backed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"The visit will bring an important political message: a turnaround in Israel's relations with the largest country in Latin America".

Almost 20 percent of Brazil's $5 billion beef exports go to 17 Arab countries.

Brazil, he said, "is an vast country with enormous potential for Israel from an economic, security and diplomatic point of view".
